discuss defense contractors. a look at the urging of politics, and a george mason university professor on the sake of the u.s. housing market. host: several stores focusing on the battleground state of ohio. president obama with a five piont lead. president clinton hinting an arm of al qaeda was behind the attacks. a wall street journal stories says companies are changing how health care will be a provided to their employees. they will give their workers a fixed amount of money and allow them to choose their own medical company. consumer spending saw the largest rise in 2011 suggesting customers are spending more at restaurants, clothing, and for health care. we will look at what the labor department found out. but we want to talk to you about your spending habits as they stand today. are you spending more, and if you are tell us why. if you want to reach out to us on social media, @cspanwj for twitter. you can always send us an e- mail. here is a story yesterday and "the wall street journal." the labor department said all areas rose last year. we will see a little bit more o
is -- who answer the answer and where do we find it? but i see things -- i've been with the defense department for 35 years. everything is sigh saturday silent. i'm hoping you will do something about that in the educational system. starting with -- [inaudible] >> yeah. a lot there. both -- a couple of things. ultimately the question is what do we value? what skills are we trying to teach? .. >> it is clearly not the norm. it is clearly more the exception. i always get asked, what's the appropriate federal role. i think about that every day, what's our role, the state role, the local role. one of the best uses of time and resources, i think, is for us to shine a spotlight on best practices to help with more resources, with more flexibility, whatever it might be. so wherever we're seeing those skill sets being taught, shining a spotlight, convening groups of teachers and principals to talk about those things, we think, are really, really important. so we can help to try and build that culture. long way to go. the other thing that's emerging that i'm really interested in that's related
, -- america should stop acting as the world's policeman. i do believe in a strong national defense, but the optimum board is defense, not offense. we do not have the mour money cy spent here at home. >> todd akin. >> it is important to have a foreign policy to start with. you have to have some basic principles, the guidelines. that needs to an acute -- includingraq, afghanist, a whole lot of other countries as well. the problem is we have not had that. what it seems like the vacillating policies we have almost punished our friends and helped o enemies. we decided to turn our backs on two of our allies, the czech republic and poland. we had plans to build missile defense. we gave that is a concession to russia. how much has russia helped us with iran? how much has russia helped us with the situation in afghanistan? giving special attention to chavez and turning our back on netanyahu when he wanted to meet with the president, the sending of mixed signals is very destructive to foreign policy. in the case of egypt, for instance, we talked a little bit about that in a press release. th
programs for defense companies, transportation companies. they get federal dollars so they can do these programs. these programs go away january 1st pairs of these companies including defense, health care, transport will have to notify employees by november, the end of october to notify employees their jobs are cut. so in addition to the largest tax increase were going to see since world war ii, were also going to see a host of layoffs at year-end, all as a result of ignoring the fiscal class, which is why there is so much talk about it. so you know, i do think we are walking on shaky ground and unfortunately the president has been unable to provide the leadership required to get these two groups together, the right and the left. you know, part of the job of the commander-in-chief has to be to compromise and bring these two groups together. for congress to say we're going on vacation for five weeks and then come back and say we go away again until after the election, with nothing done about the fiscal class is truly irresponsible. and the fact that the leadership -- there is no le
the truth on what happened. >> greta: so u.n. ambassador rice resign? earlier former secretary of defense donald rumsfeld went on the secretary. mr. secretary, nice to see you, sir. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> greta: there are many calls for ambassador to the u.n., susan rice, to resign. she has the backup of the secretary of state and the president, but there are calls for her to resign after going on all the talk shows and pushing this youtube video as the reason, the cause. your thoughts, sir? >> well, that's really up to the president and ambassador as far as i'm concerned. i think that the president can nominate who he wants, and the senate confirmed her. and she's the ambassador while she's there. i watched the presentation. and i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritiatively and be that wrong. >> greta: do you think she was perhaps hung out to dry? i thought it was unusual that the ambassador of the u.n. would make that appearance after that event? i would have expected some other member
. >> thank you. megyn: breaking news on maas i have layoff -- massive layoffs on the defense industry and how the notices were supposed to go out right before the election. not now. >>> plus, with just five weeks until the votes are counted and the head of the military voter participation project says military voting looks like it will be way behind where it should be, and the numbers are staggering. he will join us live next on what and who he thinks is to blame here. [ male announcer ] this is the age of knowing what you're made of. why let erectile dysfunction get in your way? talk to your doctor about viagra. ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex. do not take viagra if you take nitrates for chest pain; it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. side effects include headache, flushing, upset stomach, and abnormal vision. to avoid long-term injury, seek immediate medical help for an erection lasting more than four hours. stop taking viagra and call your doctor right away if you experience a sudden decrease or loss in vision or hearing. this is the age of taking action. viagra. tal
appears on the stage is very important. normally when a candidate gets defensive that is when they started looking bad. that happens with barack obama. it happened when he told hillary she was like have likable enough. it happened with mitt romney when he did the $10,000 bet with governor perry. it's very important that governor romney keeps making the case about the economy and keep pushing an alternative vision that the american people can see as a better path and a better way forward to improving the economic conditions. if he does that he will put the president on the defensive. if he allows the president to sort divide the audience, talk about women and myth of the war on women and talk about the middle-class and divide the country and gets on the defensive or talk about issues that are irrelevant to the economy, then that is place where governor rom can look at defensive and may not look as good to the audience. >> is it possible to be too prepared for the debate and candidate appears to be reading off a card imprinted in the back of his head because people are pounding him with info
or the national security. 90% of jobs in virginia, from the defense industry -- 19% of jobs in virginia. we have put forward solutions that did not aggravate a bad economy. we do not want to raise taxes. >> if there is a split decision, each party will have to compromise to avoid taking the country over the cliff. what compromises the believe your own party will have to make to walk the country back from the precipice? >> we have to get control over spending. we have to keep certain financial commitments -- social security, medicare, medicaid. the defense budget is bloated. we have a bigger defense budget than other countries. people against our national security interests are called terrorists. those are the people i was pursuing when i was mobilized after 9/11. that doesn't mean we need to lose those jobs. first he supported a sequester and then he didn't. it is to blame game. what need to do is take a scalpel and look at the outsourcing of our defense. we need to make sure we're not sending things to halliburton and places like that. the defense department should be able to support itself. th
as such and in fort hood i've done an extensive investigation, how can the defense department brand that or dealing with it as work place violence. it's just dishonest if i could take my reporters hat off. >> mike: i don't know how you could have your reports hat on and not state the obvious. what some of us are satisfying. and obvious to everyone. quickly, i want-- don't want to run out of time, but i have to ask you about new information on some of the security flaws that were apparently in the consulate in benghazi. you've uncovered some of those security flaws, tell us what those were. >> thank you, i spoke yesterday with someone who was called a regional security officers, the person in charge of the security in that country, and the state department personnel and someone who worked extensive will in the middle east. says catherine look at the pictures of the consulate in benghazi, a location classified as high risk of a terrorist attack or high risk of civil unrest, from that classification, very specific physical security standards followed by the state department. ocean, when you look at th
of defense with regard to that attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi in libya a little over two weeks ago in which four americans were killed including the u.s. ambassador to libya. barbara starr at the pentagon, just popped out of the briefing with the defense secretary and the fact that this attack was planned. >> reporter: absolutely, brooke. new information now, senior administration officials were telling me earlier in the day that they began to gather intelligence within a day or so of the attack indicating that this was potentially al qaeda related or al qaeda groups. but now, defense secretary leon panetta has gone further in this briefing, just concluded here at the pentagon, with very definitive word about his assessment of what happened. i want you to listen. >> as we determined the details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear that there were terrorists who had planned that attack and that's when i came to that conclusion as, again, as to who was involved, what specific groups were involved, i think the investigation that is ongoing hopef
button issue of same-sex marriage. one case on appeal deals with the defense of marriage act which the obama administration it will no longer defend in court. another appeal involved california's prop 8 that would amend the state's constitution so california would recognize marriage between man and woman as legal. >> this is one of cases you have seen it from the cases that were started filing that would make it to the supreme court. >> we could know as early as monday morning whether the justices have decided to take up both of those cases. >> gregg: shannon, thanks. >> heather: a tsa agent busted for stealing from passengers is speaking out. he says that he may have been one of the most prolific at tsa but when he tried to sell a stolen camera on ebay. estimating he stole $800,000 of items from flyers. he said he did it because he wasn't getting paid enough and he wasn't treated right by former colleagues but he wasn't the only one. that stealing was very commonplace. >> it was so easy, one day i walked out of there with video game nintendo wii, i walked out in my hand and nobody
of the joint chiefs of staff and the defense secretary finally statedding the obvious. >> it was a terrorist attack. as we determined details of what took place there and how that attack took place that it became clear there were terrorists who planned that attack. that's when i came to that conclusion. >> day after or was -- >> took a while to really get some of the feedback from what exactly happened at that location. >> there was a thread of intelligence reporting that groups in the environment in western, correction, eastern libya, were seeking to coalesce but there wasn't anything specific. bill: well, peter doocy is live in washington drilling down on the specifics. peter, if the administration knew it was terrorist attack in 24 hours, why did they not just say that? >> reporter: we heard from administration officials there is ongoing investigation and more details will come out after it wraps up. we learned yesterday not one fbi agent has stepped foot in fwauz gauze in the 17 days since the attack because things are too dangerous. u.s. officials internally labeled the deadly raid on t
the despised and that it's one of the great things of american law that everybody does get a defense. now, if i were in his position and i were giving away free time, i might prefer to spend it defending a black kid in the inner city about to get 30 years for a new drug offense or find other causes. i personally wouldn't do this cause. going back to john adams defended the british soldiers who were in the boston massacre we do have a tradition of providing representation. >> bill: that's fine. in totality, would you vote for this guy west to confirm if you were a senator? >> that's a difference. the president and the attorney general have every right to nominate anybody that they want. and the senate can accept and reject. i would actually be ambivalent about this. if that were the only charge against him, i'm not sure he has already been. >> bill: let me give to you with more. >> in the justice department for a couple of years. >> bill: let me give you two more. he represented lind. he also represented a man named mark klein who leaked stuff about the national security agency, all right? and h
of a sudden has to be on the defensive, and he doesn't handle it very well. >> there were several things that hart didn't handle well, but that's another story. >> he was reeling. we came right back in with another punch, which was the red phone. >> the most awesome, powerful responsibility in the world lies in the hand that picks up this phone. >> again, they used emotion to sell the idea that gary hart was style, not substance. >> vote as if the future of the world is at stake. >> decades later -- >> it's 3:00 a.m., and your children are safe and asleep, but there's a phone in the white house and it's ringing. >> hillary clinton's consultants used the same theme to attack barack obama. >> who do you want answering the phone? >> in this case it was barack obama, because he answered the red phone at 3:00 in the morning. said, gary heart answered the red phone at 2:00 in the morning. did they steal it from us? absolutely. >> today's ads are more likely to be direct attacks. >> barack obama, what a disappointment. >> americans say we don't like these attacks, but they do work. in the swing
. it is not a good feeling. the defense minister says that when it comes to military spending, the iron dome defense system, remember this is not the first time that egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israeli embassy eight months ago. this is the second time in one year that in egypt embassy is fair game. the prime minister called obama immediately and obama got on of holland -- the phone and said, do something about this. protect these people. she will routinely say that this is the best president in american history in terms of support for israel. in terms of military spending, we have never got more support. but if you ask people on the street, they have a very different reading of the feelings of obama to israel. >> i had taken the position up until recently that israel should not be an issue in the race because the parties are both supportive of israel. it should relate to the domestic issues where there is clear cleavage between the two. that has been my position. i don't think that anyone can rightly say that president obama is the best president. i think reagan was. i think s
amendment is they are. it's an inalienable right to self-defense. you know, you have a right to concealed carry, a right to defend yourself and your family and gun ownership, the statistics are next, but gun ownership oftentimes deter crimes. so you know, a gun is a tool or an instrument, inanimate instrument to be used by people and can be used for good or bad and we need to protect our self defense. we need to protect our right to self-defense. >> jay nixon >> we have a long tradition of being outdoors, using guns in very sportsmanlike way. now governor when it comes time to do with these issues we've worked to make sure we expanded the rights of folks and kept the training that was out there their nature military folks had the opportunity kaman forstmann folks and others. we've made the necessary changes in those last to strengthen them, to allow more people to defend themselves. but ultimately this test or conservation heritage the state. as most everybody here knows, i've been involved in hunting and fishing outdoor activities my entire life and look forward to continuing that. septe
grants. one is in the same-sex marriage cases, the defense of marriage cases and the proposition 8 cases and the other is in the voting rights cases. both of these are likely to be taken on by the courts. we don't know how they will play out because they have not to grant uncertainty in these cases yet. i think they also share some interesting aspects, and those on the relationship between the state and a federal government. first, to turn to the defense of marriage act and proposition 8 cases -- i will talk about doma cases for it. first, for some history on doma, it was passed in 1996 and has two main sections from only one is really at issue in section 2 is about trying to protect states from being forced to recognized marriage in other states. the section that deals with the defense of marriage for federal purposes, federal law, federal taxes, a whole host of bedroll laws. it says, for the purpose of federal law, the word marriage means of a legal union between one man and one woman, husband and wife, and spouse refers only to a person of the opposite sex. that is the section of the
getting squeeze. let's go forward to january 1. that's when defense department cuts are supposed to take place. 60 days in advance that november 2, warning notices are supposed to go out from contractors to their employees saying here comes some layoffs. the administration does not want layoff warnings going off right before the election. so they said to people like lockheed martin. you don't need to send these layoff warnings out. they say they are hypothetical. lockheed martin says it is the law. we must send the out the notices. the administration says if you don't send out the warnings, then we'll indem anyify you, we'll cover lawsuits that might result if there are layoffs. so the taxpayer is on the hook for not sending out these warning notices. it's pure politics. martha: it's unbelievable, frankly. either we are going to have these defense cut layoffs as a result of sequestration because nobody in washington seems to be able to come together on a budget deal. don't they have to face the ramifications of that and say we are going to have these defense cuts and that means we have t
will be watching for is whether the court takes a case on gay marriage or the defensive marriage act. so a lot on the plate and some very divisive and even wedge issues, the court could be deciding this term, ashleigh. >> and listen, joe, as we've been covering the supreme court for the last 20 years, it's no secret that these decisions become increasingly partisan or at least that is the optics out there for those of us who watch this. because those decisions are always right down the line it seems on the big, big topics. in fact sandra day o'connor recently said in an interview said she's distressed about the confidence level in the country. so with these big decisions coming up, is it important for chief justice john roberts to keep that in mind? to keep this confidence level of the united states front and center as this group makes these decisions? >> well, i think right now despite the health care decision that everybody knows about, you still have to say that chief justice roberts is a conservative. and you're right, this court is very evenly divided, sort of four on the right, four on t
on target than the romney campaign. he needs to put obama on the defensive and needs to remake his image. i think he needs a long strategy through all the debates. i'm not sure he can do all he needs to do in one debate. >> it's so great to have both of you here. come back. thank you. >>> lockheed martin and other defense contractors agreed to a white house request not to give lay-off notices to employees days before the election in november. those companies are anticipating thousands of lay-offs because of defense budget cuts and they are required to give workers 60 days notice. it's highly unlikely any budget cuts will be decided on before the election. the administration argues that pink slips should not go out because of "uncertainty." republicans are expressing outrage saying the administration strong armed the industry to cover up job losses. creamy spinach artichoke dip, crispy garlic chicken spring rolls. they're this season's must-have accessory. lean cuisine. be culinary chic. constipated? yeah. mm. some laxatives like dulcolax can cause cramps. but phillips' caplets don't. they h
of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to the sequester. i'm not sure he knows that paul ryan voted for that sequester or that at this point wars are the way you make new veterans if he's threatening new wars in iran and syria the way he's been so
before about how obama has that tendency sometimes anyway when he's on the defensive to come off as a little kocondescending. how much of debate prep is hones in on an appropriate attitude and tone to take, and how do you fix that? >> you're exactly right. there's a fine line to walk there. those are my points. i wouldn't necessarily say exactly get out of being president. the point is to at once convey the seriousness and the clarity of purpose and the sense of command that americans expect from their president while at the same time being accessible and not arrogant and being frankly okay with being questioned, being okay with being challenged. >> do you admit to mistakes? is that a good tactic in debates? >> i think you do if they're mistakes you believe you ought to admit to. you know, it's an odd hypothetical to answer. i mean, i ran the edwards campaign. edwards said the vote for the iraq war was a mistake. that was probably a good thing for him to do. does that mean carte blanche? no. >> of course not, no. >> jonathan, quickly your former speech writer for president clinto
been crushed for far less egregious defenses. >> why didn't anybody point that out? that was pretty nuts, both parties had him blessing. >> when you've got catholic running mates you don't really need to quote the far right catholic vote that heart. timothy dolan is not going to support the catholic side over to obama. i would surprised he would go to the convention. >> he kind of delivered a parting shot in his blessing saying we pray for those waiting to be born. it was clearly an anti abortion shot at the d.n.c. >> as soon as they're here, we can cut all funding for day care and public schools. what do you think is the most pressing issue for the female voter this year? it's easy to have todd akin as a booing gee man. what do you think is the number one voting issue for women in 2012. >> the economy job. women have lost more jobs under obama than any other president. that is a statistic the romney consistently rolls out women are suffering under obama more than any other president. it's not necessarily because of obama's policies. it's budget cuts in red states have forced them t
. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> flashpoint libya, the white house on the defensive after reports of both security and intelligence nurse in benghazi before that terror attack. >> standing up, sitting down. >> which ever one you like. >> there you go. >> do whatever they tell us. >> the white house line is you heard the president say, osama bin laden is dead, al qaeda is done, everything is fine in the middle east. this, obviously, contradicts -- ther series of events contradicts that campaign slogan. so, the fact is, that this was clearly an act of terror committed by people who were pretty well trained jihadists. >> more carnage in afghanistan. the taliban take responsibility for a suicide attack that killed 14 today including three americans. we are deployed in the hot spots today with lester holt live in afghanistan and ann curry on the syrian border. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington, days away from thes first presidential debate in denver where mitt romney and barack obama will be trying to reach a shrinking pool of undecided voters. joining me for
